  • Washington State coach Mike Leach watches from the sideline during the second half of the team's NCAA college football game against Colorado in Pullman Wash. A person with direct knowledge of the meeting says Leach met

Fulmer, a former Volunteers and Hall of Fame coach, led Tennessee to the 1998 national title.

In the days after Schiano, Tennessee reportedly chased after coaches like Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy, Purdue's Jeff Brohm and NC State's Dave Doeren.

The Volunteers are "working on a deal" with Leach and could make an announcement as early as, Newy Scruggs of the NBC television affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth reported.

News of Leach's interest in the Tennessee job came just a day after Cougfan.com reported that a WSU recruit in Colorado had been assured by Leach in person that he was staying put.

Tennessee fired Butch Jones earlier this month and was close to hiring Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano last Sunday, but the deal fell through due to backlash from Vols fans and supporters stemming from an unproven claim in court documents that Schiano might have known about Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse of boys while Schiano was an assistant at Penn State. The meeting reportedly lasted approximately eight to 10 minutes. But since then, Leach has helped Washington State to three consecutive bowl appearances and an overall record of 26-12 in that span.

Initial reports linking Leach to the Tennessee job surfaced on Saturday, hours before the Cougars and the Huskies played in the 2017 Apple Cup.

"I want to be clear today", Davenport said. I don't even turn anything on, other than my phone. So you guys are on your own with that because I can't speak to rumors I don't know anything about, really. "And that's what we are going to do again".

The FootballScoop report also noted that if Leach did elect to leave, WSU would move "without hesitation to promote defensive coordinator Alex Grinch".

There is a growing faction at Tennessee pushing to get Currie removed. Under the third-year DC, the Cougars have made significant strides and are now ranked 15th in the FBS, allowing 313.6 yards per game.
